My friend had to go to her eye doctor for a laser treatment so she requested me to drive for her. While waiting for her to get called I noticed a guy, I assumed the son, dutifully lifting his father in and out of a wheelchair maybe two or three times while, at the same time, minding his two children who were running and squealing around the waiting area. I couldn't help but wonder how he managed to get his father in and out of his car. I am sure he took some lessons on how to care for somebody like his father by the way he handled him plus the safety precaution he observed as he locked the wheels before lifting his dad.
I wish all caregivers like him will take the time to visit the NMEDA site to get informed on how this organization works. By visiting the site, he can even learn, through the members' assistance, how to help his dad to move about independently. The organization is composed of emergency mobility dealers that can advice or assist caregivers or patients who need assistance in deciding what mobility equipment to get, which they have quite a selection of, depending on a patient's need or needs. Members are certificated so that they can give an educated advise to anyone who will contact them.
And to further assure you of the integrity of the organization, they undergo an annual accreditation program to make sure that the mobility equipment industry follows and stays within the guidelines that the industry requires for the safety of its clients. Come on, check the site to see if there is a dealer near you and schedule an appointment. You have nothing to lose.
